  •  don't forget the Kurds (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    If Iraq can solve its own issues relative to the Kurds in the north, they won't need Iran. It's a huge job and it's going to require strong people with mojo and a nationalist agenda. al-Sadr will be part of that. Iran doesn't want a strong Iraq.

    However, it's a big "if". Part of that "if" depends on getting people elected here who have the creds and attitude to work with all of these factions to facilitate a deal that lets us walk away without more damage to all concerned.
